It’s pretty hard to write an update for an animated film on this locations-based blog, but with the Spielberg-directed, Peter Jackson-produced The Adventures of Tintin I’m going to try. Because the digital locations – from the Sahara to the historic Caribbean to muddy Belgium to the palaces and narrow streets of the Caliphate of Bugghar – are richly detailed and absolutely spectacular (we saw the movie in 2-D to avoid the horrid colour-deadening of the 3-D format). And vividly realistic too; that developments in this field will impact on the future of filming on location is entirely possible, I guess. The film’s fun too – an entertaining escapade and a couple of hours nostalgia thrown in.
